A pity we could stay only one night. The location is fantastic and the personnel just so kind, professional and accommodating. We had dinner at the beachfront restaurant and it was an unexpected amazing experience. Dishes were elaborate and delicious. If you want to try a bit of surf also the location is perfect. If you need tutoring ask for...

I stayed in Bungalow 8 with a view of the ocean from my bed. This is a coveted room and worth every penny. No TV, no radio, no phone, no toilet paper in the toilet and never have I been so happy to live so simply! Steps from the surf, Hotel Tropico Latino offers the convenience of having a place...

Hi Julie! We loved your review, thank you so much for your comments and for giving us a perfect rating! Tropico's idea is to keep the property very natural and have the lowest impact possible on the environment while offering confortable place to stay right on the beach. I think you really captured the essence of our hotel, the simplicity,...

Steps from the beach and surfing and steps from the bustling downtown scene. The location is perfect to go everywhere on foot. But you won't really want to leave the cool canopy where the staff takes such personal care.
